The Court Order 2-27-12 ordered the parties to see an economic mediator. The mediator charge $350 per hour and the parties need to split the cost. One party has ability to pay and refused to spend the money then he filed a motion and the court day is 3-13-12. I am the other party who can not afford to pay. Do I have to see the economic mediator? If I don't, what will happen? Is there a way to avoid see one? Can the court order the other party to pay for all cost knowing that he has ability to pay?My x filed a motion before to change of circumstances because he is retiring on 1-28-12. He does not want to pay $400 weekly alimony and his pension. That is why the judge sent us to economic mediation. My X make $145,000.00 a year and I lives on Alimony. After we got the court order 2-27-12, my X file a motion again that he want to discontinue alimony but pension only. Not knowing the amount of pension that I am getting, my X just want to give $400 weekly as pension only. The court only allows 45days to complete the mediation starting from 2-27-12. I guess I have to request for different split for the mediation on 3-13-12. We are both pro se. What is esp and mesp? What is the different? Can I find my own mediator - reasonable fee.
